Abstract

Since the first cases of SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia reported in Wuhan in December 2019, the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has rapidly spread worldwide, and Radiology Departments have to face significant changes in order to cope with this sanitary emergency. We would like to share our experience with the outbreak of COVID-19 in our Radiology Department at the Humanitas Clinical and Research University Hospital, a tertiary level center located in Milan, Italy. In particular, we would like to share some actions we undertook in our activities that other Radiology Departments might ponder to take into consideration.
